Other public benefit organizations may apply to this program to support arts-specific activities.  


Application Deadline:

NOTE:  See Section 4 for Online Application Submittal Requirements


Pre-Application Workshop:

Friday, December 1, 2023, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PMvia Zoom.

take pART: Cultural Participation and Community Engagement Grants (hereinafter referred to as “take pART Grants”) support arts activities offered by non-professional arts organizations and community service organizations with continuing arts programs, as well as small semi-professional and professional arts organizations seeking to secure City support for specific arts activities, rather than general operating support.

take pART Grants are intended to serve as partial support for arts activities, with awards no more than half of a granted project’s budget and usually significantly less. take pART Grants are intended to support one project or program per organization. All applicants are highly encouraged to include the full costs of the project or program in the budget section, including all administrative costs, overhead, insurance costs, facilities, artists, marketing, and all other operational and production costs born by the program or project.

Eligible activities include, but are not limited to, community-based arts projects that involve San Jose residents directly in the artistic process, as well as projects by small artist-centered groups that do not have the need to build the kinds of institutional infrastructure required of Operating Grant applicants.


take pART Grants support three guiding principles of Cultural Connection, San Jose’s plan for cultural development in the coming decade:

ü  Cultural Participation: Supporting residents’ personal, active participation in arts and culture.

ü  Cultural Pluralism: Using culture as a connector and fostering a “cultural commons” through arts and culture.

ü  Public Value of the Arts: Using personally meaningful arts experiences to help achieve community goals and create a better San Jose.


take pART Grants are intended to encourage:

¢  Opportunities for public participation in arts and cultural activities;

¢  Life-long arts and cultural education programs outside the school setting;

¢  Expressions of culturally specific traditions of San Jose’s diverse population;

¢  Opportunities to experience and engage in the arts in neighborhood and community settings; and

¢  Arts programs that serve the needs of the clients of health and social service institutions.
